A reddit user has leaked some details about the Nintendo NX.

The Nintendo NX is fighting with the iPhone 7 for the title of the most rumored gadget of 2016. Nintendo is very secretive about the Nintendo NX. The NX is going to critical for the company. It as to be a success that makes gamers forget that there ever was a Wii U.

reddit user untypedhero raised some attention end of March with some Nintendo NX details. Today he came back with another post of Nintendo NX details. According to the now verified reddit user, the Nintendo NX is based on the x86 architecture like the Sony PS4 and the Xbox One.

Other Nintendo NX details he revealed today include backup data capability to Nintendo server (most likely My Nintendo), support for an additional screen, the NX is compatible with ports of current generation games, NX will be able to interact with smart device apps and using the Nintendo NX software will unlock My Nintendo reward points.

These are not earth shaking revelations, but since there is nothing known about the NX, everything counts. In his first reddit post in March, untypedhero said that there will be no photo leaks of the Nintendo NX console, because studios develop with just the NX software. Nintendo has not given studios the actual NX hardware.

He also said that third party games would not be ready in 2016. If the Nintendo NX launches in 2016, it would launch with mostly in-house titles. Another detail he revealed was that the NX can share game data across devices.

There are more fake rumors about the Nintendo NX than about the iPhone 7. Gamers have somehow more motivation to create fake rumors than Apple fans. This is why it is extremely difficult to rate these new rumors. The Nintendo NX rumors are also quite different by region right now.

Since a couple days German media reports about rumors that the Nintendo NX will be actually named Nintendo Reach and the small companion console will have the name Nintendo Limit. Even German Bild Zeitung reported about this unconfirmed rumor that surfaced in the Gamespot forum end of March. For some reason the English language media outlets have not picked up on that rumor so far.
